Naming Compounds Manhunt Activity

Chemistry participated in a “Naming Compounds Manhunt” activity this week.

I’m usually pretty good about keeping my Algebra kids up and moving around the room away from their seats, but doing this activity made me realize I have not done a good job of this with my chemistry class this year. As a teacher, there is always room for improvement!

30 compounds were hidden around the room. Students had to locate them and provide either the name of the compound (if the formula had been given) or the formula of the compounds (if the name had been given).

I forgot all about the game of Nim! It has been years since I have played. I had to go back and teach myself how to win :)
